Screenwriting : The writers mind by Travis Sharp

Travis Sharp

The writers mind

Anybody else do this shit? I'm going to pick up my kids early from school for the dentist and I'm thinking about scenes to make my short script into a feature length and I realize suddenly I'm on the complete wrong side of town. AND I've allowed a Taylor Dayne song to play on my radio AND I'm singing along. This, to me, is scarier than rogue clowns.

Travis Sharp

So to make this more relevant, does anyone have tips to staying focused on regular life while trying to write?

Stephen Barber

If you're married, schedule (privately) a date night for every two weeks. That way you don't forget them while you're IN THE ZONE.

Stephen Barber

...but, Taylor Dayne?! For Christ's sake, don't allow that disruptive crap. Stand for something my man!

Travis Sharp

Tell it to my heart, dude.

Stephen Barber

Ha!

Alicia Cuthbertson

Wait a minute!!! Taylor Dayne is AMAZING!

Richard Gustason

Oh my god Travis. No, I haven't. I did though screw up a date by saying "This could make a great short." Yeah...this is why I'm single. LOL

Travis Sharp

Alicia... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=pWdd6_ZxX8c Yes, she is talented but not my cup of tea.

Travis Sharp

Keep trying Rich, maybe look for dates at the movie theatre.

Alicia Cuthbertson

LMAO!

Travis Sharp

I lean towards Pat Benatar and Anita Baker over Dayne.

Aray Brown

I love Taylor Dane and Pat!

Ester Lopez

Travis, I got one for you...Driving down the road, thinking of scenes, or things I need to do and I realize I have no idea where I am and why I'm even in the car. I kept driving for awhile, trying to figure out how to get home. Now that's scary.

Andreia Areal

Missing my stop in my daily commute because I'm wandering with my character somewhere else!

Stephen Barber

@Ester.... And then you realize that, at this altitude you can run flat out for three miles before your hands start to shake. All this while singing Taylor D. tracks.
